 Hi, All
I want to host the mono runtime in a firefox plugin, to allow somewhat like
an applet (an .net assembly) to run into a browser window.
The basic idea is to load and run via a platform dependand plugin a .NET
While there are not so many difficulties in loading the mono run-time and
calling a bootstrapper method from the firefox plugin, problems arise when i
try to make something of "visual".
To be more specific...

Under windows, the FireFox insfrastructure makes available to me  a native
window handle that is the hosting firefox window.
Under linux i have instead a Window* (X)
Now, for my purposes i need to use the Mono System.Windows.Forms library, so
the question is:
Under linux,
how can i embed (->make parent) a UserControl  to a X Window using the
supplied (X) Window*.
I think the XPlatUIX11 used in mono windows forms implementation uses X
behind the scenes, so the thing should be possible...
Any ideas?
